KWerner's Color Inspiration # 57



Yay! The color inspiration challenges are back.. well just for this one time but I was super excited to participate in this one. I was inspired by the bird cage lanters that I saw on this blog: http://www.thebridescafe.com/?postID=663&diy-bird-cage-lanterns. I plan on making one of these with the colors from Kristina's challenge but that'll come later.

Since I liked the cage so much, I decided to hand cut a cage for the background out of the blue cardstock. I found that October Afternoon's Farm Fresh paper pack had the right colors for the saffron and mustard so I used that for the bottom piece. The flowers were punched out and crumbled up to give it a distressed look. I stacked 3 of them together and put a brad through them. I rounded the corners and then added some faux stitching to finish off the card.
